Location: Lusaka, Kalundu

About Us:

We are a young, dynamic start-up company and a leader in the Advanced Biomass Cooking sector, committed to creating positive impacts globally. From humble beginnings, we have cultivated a vibrant spirit and boast excellent growth potential. As we flourish, we seek an energetic and committed professional to join our team as Human Resources, Administration, and Executive Support Manager.

Emerging Cooking Solutions (Zambia) Limited, trading as “SupaMoto”, is a Zambian/Swedish joint venture introducing clean-burning modern cook-stoves, renewable cooking fuel pellets made from waste biomass and solar home systems. Our locally produced pellets are cheaper than charcoal, and the cooking solution performs similarly to a gas stove.

Our company has over 100 staff with a presence in both Zambia and Malawi and is growing rapidly in the energy sector. Our solutions’ positive environmental, socio-economic, and macro-level impact is immense. We truly have a solution for the dilemma of rapid deforestation and disproportionately high cooking fuel costs for low-income people.

In line with the company’s origins, we seek a committed and dynamic person who can grow into the team and the role. The right person will be an eager, brilliant individual with strong interpersonal skills, integrity, and a love for systems and processes.
